FAIRFIELD, Ohio — Fairfield hired a familiar face as its newest assistant city manager.

Named finance director in 2018, Timmer has been "very involved in the day-to-day operations of the City as well as labor relations with the City’s four unions," according to the announcement.

Before working in Fairfield, Timmer served as a U.S. government accountant for six years with the Department of Defense, Department of Veterans Affairs and the Environmental Protection Agency. At the Department of Defense, he graduated from the Defense Civilian Emerging Leader Program in 2012.

The search continues for Fairfield's next city manager after Mark Wendling's resignation last month, according to WCPO media partner The Journal-News. Bennett, Fairfield's fire chief, currently serves as acting city manager.
